Malawi's Community Health Workers

Today, World Vision supports an estimated 12,000 community health workers in Malawi. Malawi's main CHW cadres are Health Surveillance Assistants (HSAs), Care group volunteers, Growth monitoring volunteers, Safe Mother groups, and Lead farmer volunteers organizing PD/Hearth nutrition programming. CHWs supported by World Vision Malawi are trained to provide the most essential life-saving interventions such as emergency front line care; and can save children's lives from many if not most of the major preventable child mortality causes like diarrhoea, pneumonia and malaria.
